Kidney Walk is the nation's largest walk to fight kidney disease. Held in nearly 100 communities, the event raises awareness and funds lifesaving programs that educate and support patients, their families and those at risk. Last year, Atlanta raised over $200,000 and we encourage all interested walkers to join us for another amazing year. The 2015 Atlanta Kidney Walk will be held on Saturday May 30, 2015 at Turner Field. Click here to register and find out more.
